Yunoko Lake, Nikko

4.4
#5 of 23 in Nature in Nikko
The so-called "lake of hot water," Yunoko Lake represents the merging place of different waters from the hot springs of the area, and serves as a favorite go-to for a day off in the pristine nature. Enjoy the view of the waterfall the lake creates upon the edge of steep cliffs, which contributes to the overall calming atmosphere. Onsite accommodations provide the option to stay overnight, but you can also spend the day relaxing and having a picnic, or go and try the boat rides. The site also offers a number of bars and restaurants where you can grab a bite while enjoying the view of the surrounding landscape.

    With snow falling thick and fast, around the lake water was white. For the first time by the power of the tire was impressed. Visit the car measures since the first experience and dare enjoy the Lake snow water.

Where to stay in Nikko

Rich in history, culture, and nature, you'll be pleased to find that Nikko also boasts a rich variety of accommodations. Competition may be pretty fierce at peak times, but make your reservation early and you'll be able to find somewhere to sleep that suits your style. Luxury hotels and boutiques with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) never stray too far from the river, while hostels and guesthouses tend to be tucked away on side streets, and up in the north of town. Mid-range and standard hotels lie close to the main train stations and by the main plazas.
